    Hi Joe
    I didn't realise this was your question. I saw a trick on a Scotty Kilmer YouTube video. Do a normal compression test and note the pressure. Then in your case with the cylinder on the vertical position, add a desert spoon of clean engine oil, wait a minute and do another test. If the compression rises a lot, the rings and bore are worn. The oil seals the gaps

    Yes, 70 PSI is too low.

Weed eater one drive chain comes off

The problem with the chain Is the tensioner. There is not much the small spring can do. You may try to add tension to the chain but, not a good design.

How to change the fuel filter on a Weed Eater Feather Lite FX265Xtreme 25cc. The weed eater stars but won't run.

Use a hooked piece of wire to snag the filter through the fuel tank, it should pull off the fuel line.

Weed eater 961380017 where is oil drain plug located?

On the Weed Eater 961380017 it uses a Rato engine and the mower is made by Husqvarna, it is the same as their U.S. model 5521P. To drain the oil you have to first remove the dip stick and then tilt the mower over to drain the oil out into a pan.

My Husqvarna 323? weed-eater will not start. it has spark at the plug. compression is good. seems to be getting gas. I made sure we had fresh gas.??? it is only 2 years old.

The 323 was a good little engine, it did not suffer with any real problems, if it has a good spark and there is fuel to the plug it should fire, if not i would suggest that there is a mechanical problem, the flywheel has a moulded key, it may have sheared the key putting the timing out, if there is excessive piston wear this will also stop it firing up, there will also be a spark arrester in the muffler outlet, make sure this is not blocked.

Can't get weed eater started. Have an older weed eater brand. Fuel is getting to engine, but can't get it to start. How do I adjust the carb to get it to start. I have cleaned everything out and have the...

This is a common problem on older Poulan models. Press the primer button 10 times and pull the starter rope twice, then pull the spark plug and examine it. If the plug is wet that means gas is definitely getting to the combustion chamber. Next thing is to use a compression tester. If you do not have a compression tester but have an AutoZone anywhere near you, you can get a loaner from them. Screw the compression tester into the plug hole and pull the start rope 4 times. If the tester reads anything below 90psi, you have a bad ring and will have to take the motor apart to clean the piston and ring or replace the ring.

Keep me posted on what you find, ok? I can walk you through the procedure to replace the ring if necessary. Good Luck!

Snapper SS312 weed eater. Cranks when primed but won't run

I am sorry to say this, but the compression for that type of engine should be atleast 120 psi. Remove the muffler and look at the cylinder, it is scarred beyond repair.

Blades engaging intermittently/surging: Husqvarna zero turn Z246, Kaw FR600V AS 18, Hello there, Need expert advice please. I ran over a garden hose the other day and v belt and tension spring came off. Couple of hours mowing next day no problem, until belt slipped and spring came off again (ran out of juice and mower stopped just before this). I know, I'm hoses and fuel challenged but it had been a long day :) Reattached spring and threaded belt again and blades engaged. Blades ran at normal speed while stationary and then started intermittently loosing power and surging back to full speed at different time intervals while mowing at different heights of deck and lengths of grass. I can't establish a pattern, seems random. Tested PTO switch all good, tested earth all good, tested resistance on clutch all good, fuse all good. Did find left side lever safety switch was loose and wondered if this could be the problem. Tested switch for continuity, all good. Tested also while running by engaging blade and wiggling Left side lever to see if loose safety switch could be causing clutch to surge on and off and slip the belt due to the vibration. I will order a new belt tomorrow and try that, guessing old belt may be stretched despite increasing the tension. Hopefully it will run as normal with a new belt, but I think there might be an electrical fault somewhere and I'm hoping someone may have some ideas for me. Please note, this is my first multi meter ever and the breadth of my electrical/mechanical knowledge is close to zero, so please advise in lay terms. TIA, Amanda
